Re: EJC (C-Compiler) experiments

The argument made by Peter Sulzer is that EJC creates reentrant executable code as had Metacomco C (BTW,I pointed out that so does little old Digital 'C' SE). Peter Graf states that he uses PDQC for creating truly relocatable code. So first off, is there a difference between reenrant and relocatabl...

Re: Insane £1100 for a boxed QL on the Polish "eBay"

Re: QL-SD

Well, if you only want to transfer files (rather: QXL Win containers) between the PC and the FlashAir, it's as easy as can be: Simply connect to the SD-Card's Web server, drop a QXL.WIN file there and mount it on the QL-SD. What I'm referring to, is a bit more: Accessing the WiFi network from the QL...

Re: QL-SD

quite interesting the possibility to use of WIFI SD, I suppose the use of them is possible only on emulators? or someway can be used between Q68<->Q60? Can you please better explain how to use them in QL environment? I hadn't seen these before. https://www.toshiba-memory.com/products/toshiba-wirele...

Re: Prospero Pascal BEEP

Hi, Prospero's Pascal lacks an INKEY$ routine, which makes the language cumbersome to use, as the alternatives all require an ENTER. I have devised a random-seeding method to emulate 'Randomise', which is no better than a 'card shuffle', but if there were an INKEY$, it could be greatly enhanced. Wi...

Re: QL-SD

I'm have been experimenting with SDIO cards like the Toshiba FlashAir for some time now, giving QL-SD access to WLAN and peer-to-peer networking - Those can generally be had as large-size cards only, so must be kept in mind as well.

Re: QL-SD

I'm equipped with all the QL-SDs I will probably need for the rest of my life, so my vote probably shouldn't count, but: I think the size of the SD cards used as storage is relatively irrelevant - All of the SD cards I recently bought were both sizes (Micro SDs in an adapter). Accepted it's a bit fi...
